THE BRONX - Dozens of families waited until the last minute to get school uniforms this year, and that meant even more waiting in line. 

Many Bronx parents say they were stuck in line for about six hours Wednesday just to get inside Flynn & O'Hara School Uniforms in Westchester Square. 

First timers say they never imagined it would be as big of an ordeal and will do things differently next year. Some say they'll even skip the stores and shop online. 

The owner of Flynn & O'Hara says the store is open six days a week all summer, but it had a lot more last-minute orders than in the past.
